    Acura has announced pricing on their smallest vehicle, the ILX. The base price starts at $25,900 (Excludes $895 destination fee) when it goes on sale next month.

    For that amount, you get a 2.0L four-cylinder producing 150 HP, six-speed automatic, cloth seats, a proximity key, Pandora and text message functionality for the audio system, Bluetooth, alloy wheels and a power moonroof.

    For an extra $3,000 ($29,200), you can add the premium package which includes leather heated seats, power adjustment for the driver’s throne, an uprated 360-watt stereo with SiriusXM and active noise cancellation, fog lamps, 17-inch alloy wheels and a rearview camera.

    For another $2,200 ($31,400) is the technology package which adds ELS surround sound audio, AcuraLink multimedia functionality with voice recognition, and a navigation system with a 60-gigabyte hard drive.

    There are also two other engine choices; for $29,200 you can get the ILX with a 2.4L four producing 201 HP, a six-speed manual transmission, and the premium package. The tech package isn't available on the 2.4L.

    Then there is the ILX Hybrid which comes with a 1.5L hybrid powertrain and CVT. The base ILX hybrid starts at $28,900. The only option is the Technology Package which adds $5,500 ($34,400).

    The base engine is a turd for a "premium" compact.

    I totally agree, for an entry level premium car, this engine is pathetic. Yet the Lemmings will buy it.

    150 hp and cloth seats for $25,900, what a rip off. I don't get why people still buy Acuras, they are barely any nicer inside than a Honda and Honda's aren't even that nice.

    Other than SH-AWD, there is almost no real difference between Honda and Acura (except maybe a slightly nicer interior). And people wonder why Acuras do not sell anywhere nearly as well as Lexuses. . . . .

    Who wonders that?

    There are huge differences, and not speaking simply as a blinded Acura rep now, while a few platform bits may be shared, even models that have similar guts underneath are nothing alike. Try to compare an MDX to a Pilot, for example. They never simply re-skin a vehicle, they're unique, have different customers, different powertrains, totally different drive character, unique drivetrain systems, etc.

    We have a lot of interest in the ILX. Gives a lower priced step in a slightly smaller and more efficient package, into the Acura brand that has been in existence for a few years now. More so, it is most like the last/first gen TSX offering a smaller, lighter, and less expensive package than the current model.

    ILX vs. Verano vs. should be good reviews to read. Acura needs more marketing and will be getting more attention soon with more all new models like the volume MDX being new at year end, the TL being heavily re-done for 2012 but it's replacement also not far away (TL-X I do not know, if so. At a recent Acura gathering the RLX and it's rollout were discussed, but the TL and it's new replacement after the new MDX were still referred to as just TL, it may or may not be), the RLX itself, and new powertrain options.
